Will, Freedom of the

Will, Freedom of the, the doctrine that in and under the dominion of pure reason the will is free, and not free otherwise; that in this element the Will “reigns unquestioned and by Divine right”; only in minds in which volition is treated as a synonym of Desire does this doctrine admit of debate.
